새롭게 바뀐 Redesigned SAT 시험 특징

ACT시험과 매우 유사하게 만들어 지며, 틀린 문제를 선택했을때 0.25점의 감점(penalty)제가 사라진다. 현재까지 학생들은 모르는 문제에 대해선 unmarked 답을 정하지 않했는데, 이제는 학생들이 자유롭게 marking할 수 있게 된다. 또한, 5지 선다형에서 4지 선다형으로 변경되어 학생들이 답을 선택하기가 조금 더 수월해 진다. 단어면에서도 일부는 아는 단어들이 많이 나오지만, 단어의 다양한 의미(subtle meaning)까지 요구한다.

또한 학생들이 답을 찾을때까지 여러번의 생각을 요구하게 되어있으며, 독해지문들은 좀더 어러운 문장구조(higher 문법력 요구)와 단어들로 구성되어 있다. 기존의 SAT시험에서는 수학의 난이도가 그리 높지 않아서 학생들이 공부할때 수학분야는 따로 하지 않았는데, 새롭게 설계된 SAT시험에서는 수학의 중요성이 높아지게 되므로, 수학에 시간을 좀더 할애해야 한다. 또한 섹션수가 기존 4영역에서 2영역으로 줄였으며 시간도 3시간45분에서 3시간으로 감소하였지만, 선택영역이 되어진 에세이 영역까지 포함하면 3시간 50분으로 늘어난다.

This high-level comparison between the current SAT and the redesigned SAT highlights major design features of the two tests. The first table provides a comparison of the major features of the current SAT and redesigned SAT. The second table provides a comparison by test, including the number of items and testing time. It is important to note that while the information in these tables represents our best understanding of the nature and features of the redesigned SAT, some specific elements, such as timing, length, and reported scores, are subject to revision based on the ongoing research process that guides the redesign.
